Audience-Participation Murder Mystery Search Results


More information about all the murder mysteries described below can be found on the Lazy Bee Scripts web site (click on the titles).
However, unlike the play scripts, we display 'tasters' instead of the entire contents because many groups run these competitively, and would not want their audiences to be able to find out whodunnit in advance!
Prices and licensing arrangements can be found on the detailed pages or by clicking on the "Price" links.
